In March last four horses were removed- two to Aberdare and two to Hirwain- and were afterwards found to be suffer- ing from mange. Mr. R. T. Bushel, veterinary surgeon, deposed to having examined the horses before their removal, when he could find no evidence of the disease. The Stipendiary (Mr. D. Lleufer Thomas), in dismissing the case, remarked that there was no evidence to show that the defendant knew of the presence of the utsease when the horses were removed, but lie expressed the view that the germs should have been sterilised and the stables closed for some time. Under the circum- stances defendant would be ordered to pay the costs. "TO WET HIS STRIPES." George Llewellyn. Tonypandy, appeared again to answer a charge of drunkenness. "I only asked P.C.
